    How playable is this in limited? I guess you can loot away your lands and turn them into… more lands? To make this a threat you have to discard at least 2 cards, that seems rough.

      Winding Constrictor, i will test a GB Explore deck for sure after this set comes out :P

    I thought this said young raider and now I am dissapointed.

    Tomb raider not young raider

    No idea if this is good, but it is strategically interesting.

      This card is clearly overcosted, but I think people are overlooking the fact that BG needed a discard outlet for its reanimation archetype.

        A spammable one seems bad…

        Idk about that. It’s not the best turn 3 play, that’s for sure, but in a constrictor deck or in a lategame scenario, it can do a lot of work. If you’ve got it and constrictor out, it gets (1), Discard a card: give [card name] 2 +1/+1 counters. Late game it’s a quick route to get rid of land top decks. I think it’s a solid budget build-around but it might be good enough to make it into real tier decks (energy is a problem though).

    I love that if you discard a land with this then it fuels itself. You won’t pump it but it can help with mana flooding if you every have that problem. I think the design is just great, especially with Menace, because you can filter though the cards you don’t want/ need and pump with along the way. Also it seems great in Sidisi EDH to help dump Dredge cards or mil creatures slowly not to mention I occasionally get mana screwed. It can also really help make some sort of discard strategy work in Standard with some of the cards fro Amonkhet block. Too bad Madness rotated because this would be insane with that.

    This guy is better than he looks. Too bad gitrog left standard. Still has synergy with ramunap excavator, archfiend of ifnir, winding constrictor, reanimation, or just plain digging
